Crime update Feb: Gold Chain Snatching Warning

“On 12/31/12, at approximately 2:00 pm, victim was walking in the area of San Vicente Blvd and Keniston Ave. As he was walking, he was suddenly approached from behind by the suspect, who snatched his gold necklace from his neck. Suspect then ran in a southbound direction. Suspect was described as a Male, Black, 5’9, 180, approximately 29 years of age, wearing glasses…. Avoid wearing jewelry in public view especially if you are walking alone. Due to the price of gold, chain snatches are becoming a frequent occurrence. This type of crime is conducted in seconds, literally. Again, always be aware of your surroundings. Trust your instincts.” - Senior Lead Officer Ruben Gonzalez
